In October Devine released a boom bap and lyrics smorgasbord in the form of his 7th full length album, Kingtucky. Continuing that momentum, he decided to release "Kingtucky: Break Loops & B-Sides" which features exclusive remixes of the project songs as well as brand new tracks that was left off the original version. Before releasing the 11 track project on the 29th, Devine give fans an appetizer with "Thorns In My Crown" which features CunninLynguists front man and long time collaborator Deacon The Villain.
"The concept of this song is about sacrifice. Deacon and I talked about the strategic we made as artist to bypass some of the trendier elements of hip hop in order to stay true in the music we create and the message we spread. The title came from Jesus' Crucifixion. Though he dawned a crown, it was throned and worn as he was being sacrificed for a greater purpose. Without sounding too blasphemous, we too feel as though we are sacrificing by refusing to acquiesce to the popular waves in the culture for a greater purpose."
